The war with the Ottoman Empire was a war not only between great empires but about empire and the furthering of European imperial interests, and its aftermath laid the foundations of the modern Middle East. Soldiers from Britain, Australia, New Zealand, India and other parts of the British Empire all fought in various theatres in the Dardanelles, Sinai, Palestine, Syria and Mesopotamia and played an important, though never decisive, role in several of them. The Australian Imperial Force was a relatively small part of a much larger imperial military machine, and without the resources of the British Army and its willingness to expend them in a sustained manner on the various Dominion forces the latter could have achieved little.This book examines the involvement of Australians in this part of the Great War, but does so in a wider context in order to more fully understand the real importance of these complex events and Australia's part in them.Drawing on archival records in Australasia, Europe and North America, The War with the Ottoman Empire provides a fresh perspective on Australia's involvement in the Great War and our place in the world as empires shifted.The Centenary History of Australia and the Great War Series:Volume 1: Australia and the War in the Air - AvailableVolume 3: The War with Germany - AvailableVolume 4: The War at Home - AvailableVolume 5: The Australian Imperial Force - Available

MEDIA REVIEWS
The War with the Ottoman Empire is a solid contribution to a growing body of literature that considers the Ottoman perspective on the conflict * Kate Ariotti, Australian Journal of Politics and History *
a book that captures the strategic and operational complexity of the campaigns waged against the Ottoman Empire ... Grey handles the narrative brilliantly in a book that is written in an accessible style and well illustrated throughout with appropriate photographs and useful maps. Most impressive is the fact that he summarises the existing literature ... in a clear fashion, but also integrates into his narrative a solid grasp of the primary source material held in British and Australian archives. * James E. Kitchen, Army Historical Research *
